5w ago - Today WIRED shared pictures and a video of a PlayStation 4 teardown detailing exactly what's inside Sony's next-generation PS4 console below.
To quote: TOKYO - Inside Sony headquarters, at the heart of Tokyo's Shinagawa district, Yasuhiro Ootori is about to reveal something that almost no one outside the Japanese tech giant has ever seen: the inside of a PlayStation 4.
It's the middle of October, four weeks before the new game console is due to reach stores in the U.S. and Canada, and Ootori - director of the mechanical engineering team in charge of the PS4 - is surrounded by a phalanx of other Sony engineers, several PR handlers, two journalists, and six guys set to capture the moment on video. Not to mention the interpreter who will instantly translate his commentary into English.
The video producer slaps his hands in front of the two cameras - an imitation of an old movie clapboard - and the Sony man spends the next hour and half taking the console apart, piece by sacred piece. He even wears white gloves. It's the world's first PlayStation 4 teardown.
5w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz posted up a video today announcing that Ys: Memories of Celceta is coming to PS Vita on November 26th, 2013.
To quote: It's Thanksgiving weekend. Your whole family is in a tryptophan-induced coma from eating too much turkey. But you? You ate nothing but pumpkin pie, so you're still wide awake.
Fortunately, you've got your trusty Vita on hand, along with a copy of the Ys: Memories of Celceta Silver Anniversary Edition, which launches on November 26th. So while your in-laws all dream of sugarplums and dandelions, you'll be off exploring the Great Forest and saving the world from evil yet again.
The latest installment in Nihon Falcom's 25 year-old RPG franchise, Ys: Memories of Celceta, is a complete reimagining of the series' legendary fourth installment. To make a long story short(ish), Ys IV is a game that's been published in Japan three times previously - and all were completely different games that were developed independently by different companies.
Despite each one introducing and greatly expounding upon some of the franchise's most pivotal lore, Falcom never actually created their own version of the game... until now.
And in keeping with tradition, this is no mere remake. The story is brand new, and the land...

5w ago - 2K Games Senior Community Manager Ronnie Singh posted up a video below today announcing that NBA 2K14's Eco-Motion Engine brings players to life on PS4.
To quote: What an exciting year for everyone in the video game industry. The team here at 2K has seen a lot over the years, and experienced countless new system launches.
But we've never seen one like this year, with the launch of PS4. It's an old cliche that new technology allows developers to take their products to the next level, but that's never been truer than now.
As work began on NBA 2K14 for PS4, the next-gen technology inspired our developers at Visual Concepts to develop a completely new experience from the ground up. NBA 2K14 on PS4 will feature re-built game modes, stunning life-like graphics, and a brand new gameplay engine.
With that said, 2K is excited to unveil the all-new Eco-Motion Engine for NBA 2K14 on PS4. With Eco-Motion, the entire NBA experience comes to life in ways never before seen in a video game, including crowd reactions, atmosphere, coaching strategies, real player voices, and most of all the emotion of the game.
Player animations are dynamic, and evolve on the fly as you play. Player personalities...
